Delilah

Album: Hillbilly Bone (2010)
  • I knew the moment that you walked in
    You were looking for your old friend
    Well here I am
    It ain't no big surprise
    You got a broken heart to kill
    Tired of knowing how it feels
    When you learn you been living
    A lie

    Oh, and ain't that a shame
    You shouldn't feel such pain

    But you can't blame no one but you, Delilah
    For what you find when you never ever look around
    Reach out for the one right here beside ya
    And find the one that's never gonna let you down

    Mmm, mmm, mmm

    So go ahead and take your shot
    Drink your whiskey on the rocks
    And tell me how
    You'll never find the one
    But Lord knows it hurts me bad
    Every time I see you sad
    Knowing that my love
    Goes on and on

    Oh, it just ain't right
    You're alone tonight

    But you can't blame no one but you, Delilah
    For what you find when you never ever look around
    Reach out for the one right here beside ya
    And find the one that's never gonna let you down

    Mmm, mmm, mmm

    You can't blame no one but you, Delilah
    For what you find when you never ever look around
    Reach out for the one right here beside ya
    And find the one that's never gonna let you down

    Mmm, mmm, mmm

    I knew the moment that you walked in
    You were looking for your old friend
    Well, here I am
    It ain't no big surpriseWriter/s: BLAKE SHELTON
